Roger Hayden’s book, The Abducted is crime novel about a serial child abductor.  During one of the abductions, the criminal killed a young police officer.  The main character, a police sergeant, struggles to deal with the guilt of losing her partner and her inability to catch the criminal.

The book was a thrilling read.  I throughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading other books by this author.

After the Shock by Scott Nicholson

Massive solar flares hit Earth and soak the planet in radiation.  The radiation destroys all electronic devices and kills over half of the population.  The survivors fall into two groups:

  1.  People that survived the solar flares, but the radiation scrambled their brains and turned them into mindless killing machines.
  2. People that survived the solar flares and seem to be unaffected by the radiation.  They are forced to find a way live in their new post-apocalyptic world.

I enjoyed reading this book.  The characters were interesting and relatable.  Also, the story flowed well, which made the book easy to read.

Abomination by E.E. Borton

Borton’s book, Abomination was fun to read.  The story is about a group of Marines that volunteered to participate in gene therapy experiments.  The goal was to create warriors with enhanced strength, eyesight, and hearing.

Unfortunately, something went wrong in the lab and the Marines experienced physical changes that left them with an extreme desire to consume blood.

The scientific explanations didn’t make much sense, but it fit well within the story line.  The characters were interesting and well developed.  Also, there were numiouers twists within the story that kept me interested.

The Accidental Hero by Joshua Graham

Big Pete is a hitman that was hired to kill a local minister.  However, though a series of random events Pete decides to turn himself into the police and tells them about every hit he  performed and every client that hired him.

The story was decent, but seemed a bit silly at times.  Also, I would recommend the author watch a few prison documentaries.  His description of Pete’s life behind bars as a death row inmate is ludicrous, because Pete freely interacts with the general population and is housed with random cellmates.

The Alpha Plague by Michael Robertson

Michael Robertson is the author of a book series called, The Alpha Plague.  The books are about a plague that turns people into wild man-eaters, similar to a zombie.  The story is interesting and intriguing.

My only compliant, is the dialogue.  The person talking could be a doctor, a middle aged business man, or even a young women; however, the phrases and words they used were identical.  It made the conversations seem a bit weird.

Other than that, I loved it and would recommend it.
